Rafael Nadal was up 6-3 6-2 against Stefanos Tsitsipas in the quarterfinals of the Australian Open. The Greek turned it around with a 7-6 (4), 6-4 and 7-5 to get into the semifinals and achieve something that only two tennis players had done: Fabio Fognini and Roger Federer.
In the end of Miami 2005, Federer and Nadal they faced each other for the second time. A year before, in the same tournament, the young man from Manacor had won by a double 6-3. The 2005 final seemed to go the same way: Nadal was up 6-2, 7-6 (5) and tied in the third set. Roger Federer won 7-5 and then conquered the following sets 6-3 and 6-1
A decade later, also in the United States, it would be Fabio Fognini the one that would trace a match to La Fiera. The third round of the 2015 US Open began with sets of 6-3 and 6-4 for Nadal. Then, the Italian turned the story: 6-4, 6-3 and 6-4.
